Alaska Brain Bee Saturday, Feb. 11, 10 a.m. Anchorage Museum (625 C St.)
Designed to increase the interest of high school students in studying neuroscience through a fun and competitive atmosphere, the Alaska Brain Bee tests students' knowledge about nervous system cells, neuropathology and the structure and/or function of specific brain regions and landmarks. This year's winner will win a prize and the opportunity to represent Alaska at the National Brain Bee, which will be held in Baltimore, Md., in March.
The Brain Bee is open to the public and included with admission to the Anchorage Museum. Everyone is welcome to learn about neuroscience, and engage in hands-on activities presented by UAA students. Activities begin from 10:15-11:30 a.m. and the competition is slated for noon-2:30 p.m.
Sponsored by the Anchorage Museum and the University of Alaska Anchorage Department of Biological Sciences.
